Question: period change taking ogestrel

 ajo_evans - Wed Jan 28, 2009 8:22 pm

I have always had short heavy periods. Last November they became lighter and longer. Starting a day later but last longer. They have remaing consistent since then. I have taken 6 pregnacny tests over the past two months. All results have been negative. Is it possible to be pregnant or is this just a normal change? I have taken ogestrel faithfully for two years.

User avatar Hello,
This would be in the normal range of variability.

Best wishes.
